Today in NRC Handelsblad: what was our prime minister doing this summer..?
A while ago, I made an artwork for Alfa Romeo's anniversary: 100 years Alfa Romeo.
It's on the website: http://www.alfaromeoart.com/artist/16858/Nanne_Meulendijks
And this is the painting, they sell them as posters ;)
It's called 'The ideal girlfriend'. Need I say more..?
Today I made a postcard/flyer for the comic exhibition september 8th.
A few months ago I joined a contest..didn't win, but made a nice comic-spread which was in the 'shortlist'.
The story is also by Herman Pieter de Boer, and is called: 'The woman in the moonlight'.
Janne and Mans are a very poor couple. But the love each other so much, the get one child after another..!
The don't even have names, they can't remember them anyway.
Mans has had it, he doen not want more children. What can he do about it?
He turns to the pastor for advice. But the pastor is very content with all Mans' children.
So he goes to the pub and has a few drinks.
He tells his story to a stranger.
The strangers tells Mans he must go to the old witch in the forest.
The next day, Mans is on his way.
The witch tells Mans, after he pays her with some food, his wife, Janne, must go stand naked in the water, with full moon.
Then she must say: 'o moon, o water, I can't feed all there children.'
This will solve the problem.
And it does. Janne becomes very ill, and after a week, she falls out of the bed. Dead.
It's on this website as well:
September 8th 2011: The 'grande opening' of the Comic Festival Breda! You can see many comics and graphic novels in the Centrum voor Beeldcultuur at the exhibition called 'New Talent'. Artists like Tim Enthoven and Bart Nijstad will show their work, and my graphic novel 'The slow woman' will be exhibited there!
In the Graphic Design Museum there's an exhibition by Peter Pontiac, the winner of the Marten Toonder Award, and Wasco.
Hope to see you there!
Working on my first graphic novel since summer 2010!
Special thanks to Gert Jan Pos!
The slow woman is about a happily married couple; Adelbert and Zita.
They are in love and everything 's just perfect.
But suddenly, Zita is turning slow.
Nothing seems to work to make her better...
Will she become a living statue..?
